MGP fans to protest against planned changes

Thu, 10 May 2012

A protest against plans to change the Manx Grand Prix is being planned ahead of this month's sitting of Tynwald.

An online campaign is urging those opposed to the proposals to take part in a peaceful demonstration outside Legislative Building on Tuesday morning.

The Department of Economic Development wants to cut the festival to ten days, with more of an emphasis on classic racing.

Over 1200 people have joined a Facebook group for MGP fans against the changes, whilst over 2500 have signed an online petition.
